Put laminate or hardwoodflooing over tile?

I have had tile recently put in my kitchen I'm not liking the look and it seem some tile is not flat as others or leveled. I do not want to have the same people come back and redo certain areas as the project took to long. Is it possible that laminate or hardwood floors can be put right over the tile or does the tile needs to be ripped up so the new floors can lay flat

Help with hydrangea bush?

These hydrangeas in my yard where overgrown. I read that with this type they bloom on new wood so I should trim them back to about a foot off the ground in the fall. I did that but now I’ve got these GREAT blooms that are so heavy that the stems can’t support them. Should I trim them back again this fall and then again in the spring so they are more of a bush and not do “leggy? I’m afraid that if I do that I might not get any blooms.

diy fall tassel hoop wreath

DIY: Fall Tassel Hoop Wreath

It’s officially fall so that means it is time to get my autumn decor out!Lately I am drawn to more neutral seasonal colors, as my holiday decor has become more minimal. Stepping away from what is thought to be more traditional colors also allows me to use the decor all year long if I desire.So, today I share with you my simple, goes-with-everything Fall Tassel Hoop Wreath.Minimal, yes. And a little bit modern meets Bohemian meets farmhouse. Whatever you want to call it, it reads simplicity and I am loving it.I followed my own easy tutorial for DIY: The Easiest Embroidery Floss Tassels using black thread, wood beads and jute twine. The wreath is a fresh and simple statement that I can hang anywhere in my home. The beauty of the simple wood silhouette shines and the stylish black tassels offer a funky feel to the wreath.Paired with some fall goodies like pops of orange pumpkins, it takes on a seasonal flair, but is also equally welcoming year-round on a hallway door.What is your decorating style this fall season?
